The Salton Sea is an inland saline lake, 58 km long and 14.5 to 24 km wide, in the desert of southeast California. Orginally formed in 1905-1907 by accidental diversion of flood water from the Colorado River, the Salton Sea has since been maintained by agricultural drainage from surrounding land. A few species of marine fish were introduced into the sea as long ago as 1929 when the Sea was about 14.5% but most successful introductions were made from 1948 through 1956 at higher salinities… Expand

REPRODUCTION AND SURVIVAL OF THE PILEWORM NEREIS SUCCINEA IN HIGHER SALTON SEA SALINITIES
TLDR
The Salton Sea is a large (200 square miles) closed salt lake in a below-sealevei depression in the Colorado Desert of southeastern California that is eutrophic and highly productive, but as there are no pianktivorous fishes, most plankton die and are converted to benthic detritus. Expand
Fish biology and fisheries ecology of the Salton Sea, California
Studies of the fisheries ecology and fish biology of the Salton Sea, California, were conducted in 1999 and 2000 using 50 m gill nets in river, nearshore, pelagic, and estuarine areas. Total lengthsExpand
Fish biology and fisheries ecology of the Salton Sea, California
TLDR
Any restoration alternative for the Salton Sea should consider areas close to shore as primary areas for fish reproduction and survival, except the rivers, where females predominated. Expand
The Salton Sea
A II-year sampling program was conducted to assess current chemical and physical conditions in the Salton Sea. ADJlyses included general physical conditions and a suite of water quality parameters,Expand

Factors affecting buoyancy in the eggs of Bairdiella icistia (Pisces: Sciaenidae)
TLDR
Although egg buoyancy in this species can be influenced by the ambient salinity both before and after spawning, the capacity for adjusting buoyancy is limited, and eggs spawned in salinities lower than 30‰ would probably sink. Expand
Extreme Environments: Hypersaline, Alkaline, and Ion-Poor Waters
TLDR
This chapter will describe the chemical characteristics of these water types, the physiological challenges associated with living in these extreme environments, and the physiological solutions that permit fish not only to survive, but in some cases to thrive, in hypersaline, alkaline, and ion-poor waters.

Salton Sea days of future past: Modeling impacts of alternative water transfer scenarios on fish and bird population dynamics
TLDR
Results indicate that if cessation of the QSA water transfers after 2017 occurs, then fish and bird populations will be significantly reduced in the Salton Sea. Expand

TLDR
The life history of this marine fish can, for the first time, be completed under controlled lab­ oratory conditions and the techniques developed for croakers may have application to mariculture, biossay of marine pollution, and in more general research on marine fish reproduction. Expand
